Jolly Roger Amusement Park is an amusement park located in Ocean City, Maryland. The park features two locations in Ocean City; one at the pier, and one further uptown at 30th Street. The 30th Street location features a carnival-type amusement park with multiple rides and attractions, along with two eighteen hole mini-golf courses. The 30th Street venue also houses Splash Mountain, a full-service waterpark with many slides and activity pools, along with 10 go-kart tracks. The main park opened in July 1964 and the pier location was purchased by Jolly Roger in 1974.[1]

Splash Mountain

Splash mountain is Jolly Roger's waterpark at 30th Street which has many attractions including:

  • Eye of the Hurricane- one of the park's most popular rides features riders sliding down a steep slide and into a toilet-shaped funnel before exiting into the lazy river.
  • Master Blaster- Roller coaster-style waterslide with riders going up and down and through a series of turns in tubes
  • The stealth- slide similar to a half pipe, in which tubes travel down a steep slope and up the opposite side several times
  • Six-Lane Super Racer- Guests race each other down six parallel slides on mats.
  • The Rainforest- play area consists of numerous passageways lined with sprayers and water features which lead to slides. It also contains a giant pirate head that dumps water every few minutes
  • Black Hole Slides- Riders slide down 3 partially and fully enclosed slides of varying intensity
  • Wave pool- customary tidal pool where patrons swim in waves. The pool requires a life jacket for anyone under 60 inches, which is tightly monitored by staff.
  • Lazy River- the park's lazy river winds through much of the park and is the run out for many of the park's most popular slides.
